We use Kanban since a couple of months and have some difficulties to implent it 100%. Nowadays, we use it more as a todo list than a real Project Management System. You will find below some of my biggest questions on which I could find an answer by myself :
- How should we create a Kanban card ? We don't have the typical "As a User, I want _____" but we do wireframes, mockups, HTML/CSS Integration, etc. This is why I thought to create my cards only with the title "Home page" so that it can go through the all Kanban board. Then there is the problem that the card can be an XL (1, 2 or 3 days)
- I am also a bit afraid as PM to give up my calendar. How can I be 100% Kanban (I mean flexibel) and have clear deadlines from my client ? For Example : "we want wireframes on the 10th August and mockups on the 10th of September. We thought about sessions like 2 days per week is for client meetings, the rest is only production.
- Also as an agency (12 people), we have a lot of projects at the same time and we are not focussed on 1. Should we do small teams of think more about ressources than person ? Me as PM should maybe not say "Michael will do the design of this website" but "One of the designer or together should do it, they have 40 hours, that's it".
Thank you for your help !
